After building a cage with my brother-in-law for his commander, I am thinking about completely changing mine up. I took my Rhino to Mud Nationals this year and had myself and 3 other full-grown men in with me. I didn't like riding like that, so I am going to change my cage for looks and to keep it only for my 2 young sons that could ride in the back (Low Roof).

We have a JD2 Electric over hydraulic tubing bender with multiple dies. I am still thinking on which design to go with.

QUESTION: What tubing should be used for the cage. I am not cruising dunes or jumping anything. I mainly just trail ride with some occasional mud riding.


1.Raked

2. Humvee 4-seater

3. Humvee 2-seater

4. Radius Roof

Yeah johnny... Yours has been kind of my inspiration. I got another idea too that I'm workin on. I had three guys loaded up with me and it wasn't fun. I'd rather just make it to where ONLY my young boys will fit in the back or a cooler/tools.

What unit were you with in the Marine Corps?

you could use some electric weld tubing .095 1 3/4 for your main stuff then use 1.5" for bracing and such thats what we did on mine except mines all dom and chromoly stuff (i know it will flip... more than once haha)

The hummer style doesnt look bad in the drawing but i think it will look kinda goofy once you get started but i may be wrong... i like the raked 4seater look like johnnys rhino looks sweet... or a raked 2seater...

Yeah I really like that one also... I like that little s-bend in the pillar behind the seats. I like that about yours also. That is one of the things that I will definitely incorporate into my design. I also like how the roof curls down over the front of the cage.

Always been a fan of the radius cages!
Whatever way you go make sure you put a bit of a rake in it, looks much better.
Have fun with it.

I'm a fan of the radius and I would use all DOM for the main structure...

My last cage and current cage aren't though...
